Hello, my name is Liv! I recently graduated from The University of Iowa with a degree in elementary education. I am recognized by the state of Iowa as k-6 educator. I enjoy working with a variety of ages and specialize in reading. Along with any academic needs your child may have, I also like to emphasize social-emotional concepts into my teaching.

With all of my experiences in the classroom I have a variety of tools, resources, and knowledge accessible to me that would benefit any learner.

I have experience with using manipulatives/visuals to help students achieve mastery level of fundamental skills in elementary mathematics, including: place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, money, elementary-geometry, and story problems.

I incorporate all lessons, especially reading, based on the child’s interest and what they enjoy. I have found this to be extremely motivating, especially for children who dislike to read. While still using literature that will challenge them but not frustrate them. Depending on the strengths and needs of students I can teach them strategies that they can use while they read to help them become a more fluent and confident reader.

With my reading background I have a strong understanding of phonics. I use tools such as a sound board to help students ident
